“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”  Jim Rohn

We’re down to our last week on the Island.  It’s amazing to think that we’ve been here two and a half weeks already!  How wonderful it has been to not have an agenda when we get up in the morning.  We have our list of things we wanted to do this trip, and we’ve been ticking them off slowly but surely.  There have been days we’ve been on the go from sunrise till way past sunset.  Other days, we’re just out and about leisurely exploring and discovering and experiencing, as much as we can, what the Island has to offer.  A few times we’ve just stayed “in”, lounging around the pool, soaking in the hot tub, taking naps.  

We’ve been coming here every year since 2005.  Every year we seem to stay a little bit longer.  This year it seemed to take us a good two weeks to really relax and get in to the kicked back attitude of the Islands.  We are working while we’re here as well . . . so it’s not all play and no work.  But how can we complain – telecommuting from a place like this??  Having a good team back home is really enabling us to take this time for ourselves.  Being able to spend this time away together is something many people only dream about doing.  

We’ve turned our dream in to a reality.

This is the view from our Villa. Can you find us in the photo?)

I love Water Aerobics.  There’s just something about not feeling the sweat of your workout because you are already in the water . . . plus it is an amazing all-body workout.  Unfortunately, I haven’t been for almost a year.  I was gone for most of November and  December last year . . . between my Granddaughter’s 1st birthday in California and a 3 week vacation in Hawaii – we arrived home just 3 days before Christmas.   The New Year brought several close family situations that consumed me  . . .  but now it’s time I get back to my healthy lifestyle.  It’s so easy to STOP working out . . . and really, really tough to get going again.  Why is that?  For me, I know it’s all mental . . . I create my own roadblocks.  I feel so darn good when I am working out on a regular basis.  Intellectually, I know all about the benefits that support working out and staying fit . . . but then it’s just so easy to “get too busy” or “just not get around to it” and then the day is over and I’ve not done what I said I was going to do.  One day soon becomes a week, and a week becomes a month.  Suddenly almost a year has gone by!  So – enough is enough – no more waiting for “tomorrow” or “next week”.  And if doing it for myself isn’t good enough then I’ll do it for my Grandkids and (future) Great Grandkids.  They deserve to have me around!

I’m hanging out with my granddaughter, playing in the pool and just being goofy.  We had been to a Ren Faire where the Queen bestowed this beautiful golden necklace on her . . . so she bestowed it upon me!  I love being a Grandmother!
